Best known as John Davis' band prior to Q and Not U and Georgie James, Corm was together from 1990 to 1997.

Audio Flame Kit was the first and only full-length recorded by these Braid tourmates.

Originally a 1996 split release between Dischord and Shute, Audio Flame Kit eventually fell out of print. In the spring of 2005, the album was remixed and remastered at Silver Sonya/Inner Ear Studios by T.J. Lipple (who has worked on several Dischord remasters and is a member of Aloha) and re-issued by Polyvinyl.

With unpredictable time changes, churning guitars, quick drums and dejected shouts, this band crafted an album truly rough and impressively authentic.

An essential look back that should not be missed.

First Coast News

Now a decade old, it still sounds energetic and fresh, and surely had an influence on many groups to emerge since.

Punk Planet

Strong songwriting from beginning to end

Indie Workshop

A morsel of guitar-laden goodness that's still tasty 10 years later.


Urgent vocals, angular guitars, and choppy lyric fragments are what Corm hurl forth best, making them one of the best, but least-known, post-hardcore emo predecessors.
